pope seated before the holy week. we start with claudio in vatican city. when's the latest? >> reporter: hi, toure. now the countdown is finally started, of course. well, there's no -- usually people don't have the chance to see the -- to know when the end of an end happens because in the past the pope had to die before a new pope could be voted in. this time, we have a date. 28th of february and we got a lot of reaction to the announcement of pope benedict xvi that he is resigning. first of all, look at how he -- well, he abdicated rather than resigning. let's see how. he did that during a low-key affair this morning the vatican meeting with cardinals. wasn't a big deal and he said -- his speech made it in latin. not italian or english or a comprehensible language to most people and it was down to somebody from a local press office, local wire agency to actually figure out that he actually said, well look, i'm going to abdicate. even the way that he resigned or -- sorry. abdicated was kind of low key and he did it as he's done the -- as he's leaved his pontificate all along. low key, s
raging over vatican city just behind me now. it took everybody by surprise, this announcement this morning. it even took by surprise his closest aides, his spokesperson, lombardi, saying in a press conference that he didn't even know about it, and if he didn't know about it, then who would? well, maybe just the closest cardinals he confessed it to. the cardinals, more than 120 now. certainly he made his announcement as if it was a low-key decision. he did that during a fairly small cardinals gathering here in the vatican and he just said, look, i just don't have the strength anymore to carry on my duties. you need both body and mind to carry on the very important duties of the pope and the leader of the billion catholic church and he just doesn't have the strength anymore. >> claudio lavagne reporting outside vatican city. thank you very much. >>> hoping that a $1 million reward will lead to new clues for the search of former cop christopher dorner, suspected of killing a police officer and a couple engaged to be married. in surveillance video obtained by nbc news, sources say

vatican city. thank you for being with us on what i know is a busy morning for you. >> good morning. yes, it's a little hectic, straight away. >> the first question is how much of a surprise was this? clearly the pope was not in great health. he had talked about his willingness to step aside if he felt his health was such that he couldn't perform the duties of pope and yet we hear from our producer in rome, real surprise, almost shock at this. >> well, it is a surprise. although i think people had fair warning because it was a few years ago in a book called "light of the world," a book that i suggest to a lot of people, long interview with the german journalist, peter seawald and the journalist asked the pope if he would resign at any time. he said something interesting, because this was in the midst of a scandal and all that stuff. and he said well, now is certainly not the time. it's not a time to run when you're at great risk or in an emergency period. but he said, i do believe there are times when a pope, if he doesn't have the strength, can and even should resign. so, we did have fa

. >> i want to add one thing here. it doesn't matter if he goes to every city in the country and spends his entire state of the union talking about spending on infrastructure and things of that nature, but the republican-led house is not going to go along with that. this is really an act in futility. >> dwoent know how. to be honest, we don't know how much of the speech is going to push for infrastructure spending. god forbid we have better infrastructure spending. the economic piece is difficult for the president given the recovery has been really slow. we have the numbers from january. long-term unemployment has held steady. that is a lot of people who have been out of work for six months or more, and it is at its lowest rate since june 2009. that's a long-term number. the short-term and sort of standard unemployment numbers haven't budged considerably, and so the president does -- is in a tricky position in terms of highlighting an economic plan that legislatively may go nowhere, and if you talk about what he has done so far, there's a sense of perhaps malaise among the american publ
